Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Profile alignment, part of Cert Prep: SOLIDWORKS Weldments.
- [Instructor] In this example, we're going to be looking…at aligning a weldment profile.…So you can see here we've got already a weldment created…and you can see it's this line right here…which is defining that basic shape at the bottom.…And then I've got a 3D sketch with a couple of…members coming up here, which I want to…create a weldment from.…So I'm going to go over here to weldments.…Go ahead and create a structural member.…I'm going to go ahead and use that same P one profile,…click on that one right here.…And you can see here that it's…totally not aligned, right.…That's not what we want.…So, the first thing I want to do is I want to…locate the profile, and I want to use…this corner right there.…
So that's where I want to use it.…And then I want to click on this alignment…and I want to choose that line right there.…Notice it does…align to that.…The problem is I aligned it and it spun it around…so I'm using a different corner.…So let's go ahead and try locating…that profile one more time using this back corner.…
Join Gabriel Corbett as he reviews the exam requirements, along with testing techniques and tips to make more effective use of your time. He refreshes your knowledge of fundamentals such as creating and saving weldment profiles, building sketches, trimming and extending weldments, applying corner treatments, and creating end caps and gussets. He also covers advanced weldment creation, profile alignment, and weldment cut lists. Last, but not least, he reviews questions from a sample exam and provides pointers for measuring parts correctly and verifying the unit system.
